Cul-de-sac

	  		


G  D  G 
                      B Bb                    G 
I've been leaving messages on an answering machine 
      Bm                              D              A 
In a house that's always empty, so I know nobody's listening. 
               Bm                            D 
I've been confessing my transgressions over tape hiss 
           G             D       Em 
And the silence makes me sick. 
             G 
No good can come from this. 

D F#m G G X2 

            D 
I'm letting go. 
I've been holding on like poison ivy 
          G 
Out of cold suburban concrete 
From this careless urban sprawl. 
             D 
I'm letting go. 
You know we can't keep out of trouble. 
             G 
I thought my kids would call you uncle. 
I thought we'd never be alone. 

            B Bb                 G 
I've got images of you inside my head 
    D 
Outside of the gas station where we always used to shoplift. 
                   Bm    D 
It's car-crash rhetoric. 
              G                              D  Em 
We fucked up everything we came in contact with. 
                   G 
Just boyhood recklessness. 

D A G G 
D F#m G G 

            D 
I'm letting go. 
I've been holding on like poison ivy 
          G 
Out of cold suburban concrete 
From this careless urban sprawl. 
             D 
I'm letting go. 
You know we can't keep out of trouble. 
             G 
I thought my kids would call you uncle. 
I thought we'd never be alone. 

D F#m G Em 
D F#m G Bm 

 D               Em                           Bm       A  G                      
If you walked me home, you'd know how weak my arms got. 
               Em (I usually don't play this Em) 
I just can't carry you. 
Bm     F#m          G                    Bm      A    
If you walked me home, I know I'd have flashbacks 
    G               Em 
Of snow angels and gut laughs. 
Bm      F#m         G 
If you walked me home... but you won't. 
                Bm A           Em 
You're all alone on some bullshit, pill-bottle vision quest. 
D                   G                             A 
If you walked me home, I don't know when I would finally 
            Em                 G 
Work up the backbone to walk alone. 

            D 
I'm letting go 
            G 
Cause I loved you, but I have to. 
            D 
I'm letting go. 
You know we can't keep out of trouble. 
              G 
I thought my kids would call you uncle. 
I thought we'd never be alone. 
I'm letting go. 

OUTRO  
there are two versions of the outro.  
If you decide to play I Just Want To Sell Out My Funeral after, play outro 1. 
If you don't, or want to end it sounding more complete, play outro 2 

OUTRO 1 
A        G        Bm 
If you walked me home... 

D        A        G 
If you walked me home...
